Windshield Light Brackets

Hey fellow JEEPers! I just bought some windshield light brackets and wanted to know the best way to run the lights with the least amount of exposed wires. Any ideas or photos would be great guys. Thanks.

i came down about 2 inches and over about 4 inches and drilled a hole throught the sheet metal, i pulled all of my wires through the holes and then wrapped them in wire covers. It looks pretty good since they both look about the same.

I loosened the trim cover on the base of the windshield and fed the wires up behind it and re-tightened it (JK) worked fine no drilling and minimal pinching on the wire loom .I`m using Light Force lamps , they put a bit of glare on the hood but not to bad and are very bright . They are also made of carbon fibre so no rusting and as far as being tough they shoot them with #7 1/2 out of a 12ga. !

Not my Jeep, but this is the best I've seen. It's from this thread.

I liked the idea of not having to drill holes anywhere so as you can see in the picture I just ran them through the slot in the door.

Checout for clearance, then drill a hole on each side for the grommett (probably came with your lights) then the install looks good, don't stuff them in a crack then it looks "temporary"

Don't have any close pics but willydiggers pic is close
